I don't know why they'd bother continuing with the slot and not book The Coral for it. Too obvious.

That’s so perfect that it won’t hapoen.

Read a random review of it the other day, didn’t do anything to make me wanna try it out. Couldn’t bear them first time round either, OG lineup. 

I liked them back then. I think they have actually gotten worse and it’s not just different times and that.

Nah they’re well too small for it. It’s like when people kept suggesting the Klaxons.

Really? Are they smaller than The Charlatans? Or The Cardigans?

Stumble and Fall was a tune, dislike the rest of that album. Johnny Borrell had moments where he was hillarious though.

What about "The stranglers" - seen them fairly early on in the day at a few festivals, good at getting the crowd going and don't take themselves too seriously...

Definitely and yes.

The Coral are not smaller than The Cardigans. And forget size (haven't looked at album sales etc.) but they piss on The Charlatans performance-wise. They were tragic on the Other Stage last time.

They play bigger venues than the Coral, and had bigger hits in their heyday. And obviously avoiding Manics and Blossoms support slots helps their case too. The Coral can still play the Other Stage but like at 1pm rather than 11am.

Honestly who the fuck are The Cardigans 

How do you spend all day in a library and not know how to find simple information?

I spend my day in the library doing maths I actually don't even know how to find or borrow a book from here so that adds up tbh.

"Their debut album Emmerdale... The album was named after the British television soap opera of the same name." Wtf. This band is not playing Glastonbury.

Comparing the Wikipedia pages of their Discographies, The Coral appear to have had much better album sales in the UK than The Cardigans, and higher charting singles other than a reissue of Lovefool.

They have an album that's sold much better than half a million copies? Don't think that's right.

Anyway, The Cardigans are playing academies and bigger on their next tour, and the lead singer played Glastonbury on her own four years ago so there's still an awareness of them around the place. The Coral, since returning, have played like mid-King Tuts at TITP and second-up on Latitude main stage - before the Mystery Jets. I'm not arguing that The Cardigans are massive - stuff like Manics or Elbow or whatever would obviously be bigger - but considering The Coral as a bigger booking is kinda laughable.

I wasn't really being serious about them being bigger than The Cardigans seeing as I know nowt about The Cardigans. I just looked at chart placings and The Coral's were much better, and they each have one platinum album. Not that it means much anyway.

Any scouse band will draw a solid crowd at Glasto. For the purposes of Glasto therefore, they are a bigger act than The Cardigans

Coral probably more popular than the Cardigans in the U.K.  

Although the Cardigans have sold 15m albums worldwide. The Coral have not.
